Questions for S. Korean cyclist
I'm living in S. Korea. This year I fell in love with biking. I bought a cheap Chinese hardtail to lose some weight and realized this is my sport
Anyway I decided to graduate to a nicer bike once I hit my target weight but I have a lot of questions.
-I'm interested in trying out a nice carbon road bike but I can't find any stores that stock anything over 500$ they'll let me touch. Where are some of the top bike dealers in S. Korea?
-Has anyone ever seen the one Specialized dealer here in the country and if so how is their selection, prices, service? I'm interested in getting a carbon Specialized Roubaix if they feel as good as everyone says.
-If I have to fly to another country to get a bike where should i look and what should I expect?
-Where can I get a proper fit in Korea (none of the LBS even know what I mean!)?
-A lot of the LBS owners tell me that sticking to a MTB for korean riding is best b/c the roads are substandard; they don't seem worse than the roads in America but do road bike owners have a lot of problems here?
-Any other advice concerning buying a bike is most welcome.
